Britain’s Sexiest Farmer: A Contest We Can Get Behind

This here is Hugh Morrison. With his ewe and his border collie, he’s a contestant in a “Britain’s sexiest farmer” competition by Farmers Weekly magazine. It is sponsored by the sexily named Original Muck Boot Company. I can’t properly ascertain how sexy Hugh is underneath all those farm animals and layers of clothing. But I don’t doubt he’s got muscles for days from lifting hay bales in the barnyard. Three hundred sexy, sexy farmers entered the competition, but only one man and one woman will win. So vote before January 24th! How any of them smell is another story entirely. [Farmers WeeklyDaily Mail UK]

Finally a story to bring out the giddy nerd lurking inside all of us. Not only does it contain UFOs and British monarchy, but add in some Death Eater-like locutions and you’ve got yourself a teen-sci-fi-fantasy-novel in the works.

British National Archives released letters sent between 2007 and 2009 to members of British government, including the Queen, urging them to take action over “UFO security issues.”

But the awesomest part is the content of the letters. Here’s when the Harry Potter flashbacks kick in: Keep reading »

Pam's Banned Ad
  • The UK has banned a TV commercial starring Pamela Anderson writhing in a bikini, covered in what looks like champagne froth. In the ad for web hosting service CrazyDomains.co.uk, Anderson and another sexy woman are depicted in a boardroom filled with men, one of whom is fantasizing about the two dancing in bikinis as they’re splashed with frothy liquid. The ad — which features an icky ejaculation pun at the end! — was initially approved to air after 9 p.m., but received several complaints. It has since been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority for being “sexist” and “degrading towards women.” [Guardian UK]

“Margaret Thatcher was a pioneer, willingly or unwillingly, for the role of women in politics. Her hard-nosed fiscal measures took a toll on the poor, and her hands-off approach to financial regulation led to great wealth for others. There is an argument that her steadfast, almost emotional loyalty to the pound sterling has helped the UK weather the storms of European monetary uncertainty. To have withstood the special hatred and ridicule, unprecedented in my opinion, leveled in our time at a public figure who was not a mass murderer; and to have managed to keep her convictions attached to fervent ideals and ideas — wrongheaded or misguided as we might see them now — without corruption — I see that as evidence of some kind of greatness, worthy for the argument of history to settle. To have given women and girls around the world reason to supplant fantasies of being princesses with a different dream: the real-life option of leading their nation; this was groundbreaking and admirable.”

— Here’s Meryl Streep, who portrayed former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the 2011 film “The Iron Lady,” remembering the politician, who died today at age 87.

After the jump, others remember the controversial yet pioneering Thatcher, who was Great Britain’s first and only female PM: Keep reading »

All The Crazy Hats At Britain’s Royal Ascot

The British — they have a reputation for being so refined and proper. But look, these people totally wild out. Take the Royal Ascot — a five-day celebration of British royalty and horseracing.

The wackadoodle hats that women wear to the festivities — particularly on Ladies’ Day. We’ve culled a selection of some of the crazier headwear — including a woman wearing a soccer field as a hat, really — for your perusal. Enjoy!
